As it appears on the video description, this is the instrument list and the people who played & performed:

Jimmy Fallon – wood block, tambourine, bass drum, kazoo
Mariah Carey – vocals

The Roots:

Questlove – wooden clacker w/ afro pick
Mark Kelley – Fisher Price xylophone
Kamal Gray – recorder
James Poyser – melodica
Captain Kirk – ukulele
Tuba Gooding Jr. – kazoo
Frank Knuckles – bongos
Black Thought – sleigh bells

Hope you like it as much as I do. 



Hi, everyone!

I’ve just come across this video on Youtube and thought it might be interesting to you. See if you can understand what they say and ask me in class for clarifications. The text below is an excerpt from the video’s info box.

“Katy Perry and Jodi DiPiazza sing “Firework” at the Beacon Theater in New York. “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs” is hosted by comedian and presenter Jon Stewart and raises money for autism programs, schools, and services all over the USA”.

A2 – Zippy the Zebra

Hi, everyone!

Here’s another video clip for you to work with. As usual, write down all the new vocabulary and look it up in a dictionary. Watch the video a few times, but keep in mind to leave some minutes in between to help the new ideas settle in your mind.


A2 – The first well

Hi, everyone.
Try to watch this video using your earphones. Write down all the new vocabulary and look up the words you don’t know in a dictionary. After watching the video, let the ideas rest in your head for a while, and watch the video again after a few minutes. Then, try to watch it again after a few hours and concentrate on the pronunciation.
